Publisher's Summary

Rancher Craig Harris and veterinarian Tamera Collins clash from the moment they meet. Innocence is pitted against arrogance as tempers rise and passions ignite to form a love as pure as the finest gold, fresh from the crucible, and as strong as steel. Thrown together amid tragedy and unsated passion, Tamera and Craig share a strong attraction that neither accepts as the first stages of love.

Torn between desire and dislike, they must make peace with their pasts and God in order to open up to the love blossoming between them. It is a love that nothing can destroy when they come to understand that only when hearts are tempered, minds are opened, and wills are softened can man discern the will of God for his life.

Lovely

I got this story via audiobook boom and this is my voluntary review. This was a feel-good story that had lots of drama, family loyalty, betrayal, and so much love mixed in. Loved the first scene. That set the story up for a great set of interactions. All of the secondary characters were important to the story and brought it to life. There were some spots when I was not sure how I got from where I was before to where I am now. But they did not detract from the overall story. Sorry that grandpa did not get to see the baby, but he did get to see his grandson married and happy. The narrator was good with each character and you knew who each person was as they spoke. Wonder if Shorty can get a story.

Cute romantic inspirational story

This Inspirational story talks about belief and finding God. , testing their faith in trying times. Terri England's narration is very good in this story.

Temper Temper

Tempered Hearts
: Pamela S Thibodeaux

***The GoodReads blurb for this book is incorrect!!!***

When fire and fire meet in the form of an arrogant rancher and a hurting lady vet, you can bet sparks will fly. The love-hate-love flipping attitudes get to be a bit much. I don't expect any relationship to be smooth as glass all the time, but these two seem to trip each others triggers and the battle is on. Tamera Collins wants to wait for marriage before sex.Craig Harris thinks his sex life is separate from his spiritual (or lack there of) life. What will happen if these two get together? It was a good quick listen.



The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed by Terri England.

An intense, engaging Inspirational Romance







An exciting, heartwarming story about two damaged people and their journey to finding love and to finding the blessings God has bestowed upon them, in spite of the tragedies they’ve suffered. The characters are relatable and well-drawn, and the setting comes alive. At times funny, other times heart wrenching, Tempered Hearts never fails to entertain.

Warm hearted listen

Tamera, a vet is hired to work Craig's ranch for the summer. Not being consulted about this, the somewhat jaded cowboy is not happy and voices his displeasure. These two have a rocky start, but it's not due to lack of attraction. Craig is a difficult personality, but with a nickname of Temper Tantrum, Tamera s not easy either. As time goes by, and their constant faith in God, they do find their way to love. Their relationship has many highs and lows, much like real life which makes this listen a good one. The situations are realistic, from the fear when injured to dealing with grief and love. I enjoyed the interaction with Craig's grandfather with his sage advice and warm personality. It's a feel good listen.

Narrated by Terri England, the story comes to life. I truly enjoyed England's performance. It's my first listen of hers, and she has a great pace and a wonderful variety of voices. She easily transitions between characters and I found that she brought out the true personality of each person. A good portrayal and I will be watching for more of her work.

a Wonderful story! Waiting for more!

This was a wonderful story!

I was hooked from the very start.
This book wasn’t slow at all. Sparks flew between Tamera and Craig right away.
The teasing and even bickering, added a nice element of humour.

The characters were floored and sometimes there faith wasn’t strong. .
They also had tragedy, joy and Triumph. This made the story realistic. I loved watching the characters grow and learn in faith.
As the story developed, so did the characters.
Gramps was a wonderful character that added richness to the story.

I loved the inclusion of the animals, being an animal person myself. I could relate to how Tamera felt about the horses.
We never did get to find out however, if Silver was pregnant.

I also liked the narration. The narrator brought the story to life and created the right atmosphere. I felt like I was on the ranch.
I also enjoyed the lessons and messages in the story.
There are not that many stories out there, that promote waiting for marriage and purity as something to be aimed for. I am glad to say, that this story definitely did. This was done realistically, , not in a wishy washy way.
The tough issues weren’t avoided, but tackled in a way we could all relate to.

All in all, a wonderful, encouraging, inspirational story.

I would definitely read more from this author, and am awaiting the next book in the series eagerly.

I enjoyed Craig & Tamara's story very much. The story is very realistic with just a couple exceptions. I liked how the story starts when they first meet and took me through the birth of their first baby.

Being a Christian myself I appreciated all the references to scripture and prayer which are abundant. A few extra kernals of wisdom are also thrown in as well. Craig's trigger temper is concerning throughout as well as some of his threats, I felt were unnecessarily violent or scary. These could be seen as triggers for some.

I recieved a free Audible copy of this story in exchange for a honest review.

Horrible

Couldn't stand the main characters. Wish I had paid closer attention to some of the reviews. Not worth a credit.
